Hazardous tree removal scheduled for Gifford Pinchot

Christopher Dornblaser

Hazardous tree removal is planned for later this month at Gifford Pinchot State Park, according to a release from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

The work is being done to remove dying ash trees affected by emerald ash borer as well as dead and declining trees of various species, which might be a safety hazard.

Dying trees and dead limbs close to parking lots, picnic areas, buildings, campsites and other public areas are targeted for removal, the release states.

All other healthy tree species in the area will remain after the removals, according to the release.
